Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated genetic transformation has been routinely used in rice for more than a decade. However, the transformation efficiency of the indica rice variety is still unsatisfactory and much lower than that of japonica cultivars. Further improvement on the transformation efficiency lies in the genetic manipulation of the plant itself,(More)
As the final stage of leaf development, leaf senescence may cause the decline of photosynthesis and gradual reduction of carbon assimilation, which makes it a possible limiting factor for crop yield. NACs are plant-specific transcription factors and some NACs have been confirmed to play important roles in regulating leaf senescence. In this study, we(More)
In this paper, we propose a new interpolation-based method of image super-resolution reconstruction. The idea is using multisurface fitting to take full advantage of spatial structure information. Each site of low-resolution pixels is fitted with one surface, and the final estimation is made by fusing the multisampling values on these surfaces in the(More)
In this paper, a coarse-to-fine framework is proposed to register accurately the local regions of interest (ROIs) of images with independent perspective motions by estimating their deformation parameters. A coarse registration approach based on control points (CPs) is presented to obtain the initial perspective parameters. This approach exploits two(More)
Transferring an unknown quantum state over arbitrary distances is essential for large-scale quantum communication and distributed quantum networks. It can be achieved with the help of long-distance quantum teleportation and entanglement distribution. The latter is also important for fundamental tests of the laws of quantum mechanics. Although quantum(More)
BACKGROUND The brown planthopper (BPH), Nilaparvata lugens (Stå;l), which belongs to Homopteran, Delphacidae, is one of the most serious and destructive pests of rice. Feeding BPH with homologous dsRNA in vitro can lead to the death of BPH, which gives a valuable clue to the prevention and control of this pest, however, we know little about its small RNA(More)
We address reducing the mismatch between training and testing conditions for hands-free in-car speech recognition. It is well known that the distortions caused by background noise, channel effects, etc., are highly nonlinear in the log-spectral or cepstral domain. This letter introduces a joint sparse representation (JSR) to estimate the underlying clean(More)
Polygalacturonase-inhibiting proteins (PGIPs) are typically leucine-rich repeat (LRR) proteins that can inhibit the activity of fungal polygalacturonases (PGs). In this study, two new Ospgip genes, named Ospgip6 and Ospgip7 with consensus sequence of ten imperfect LRR motif located on rice chromosomes 8 and 9, were identified using BLAST analysis. Both of(More)
As a transcription factor, NF-κB was demonstrated to regulate the expressions of miRNAs. However, only a few miRNAs have been identified as its targets so far. In this study, by using ChIP-Seq, Genechip and miRNA-Seq techniques, we identified 14 NF-κB target miRNAs in TNFα-stimulated HeLa Cells, including miR-1276, miR-1286, miR-125b-1-3p, miR-219-1-3p,(More)
